Empowered Khel Vods are enemies that appear in the Guns, Love, and Tentacles dlc for Borderlands 3. They act as brutes and enforcers for Eleanor and the Bonded. They never spawn naturally, but instead come from a Khel Vod that has ate a fellow Bonded and transformed.



  • Empowered Khel Vods have the following attacks:
    • Fire Beam - concentrated fire beam from hand, cancels when line of sight is broken
    • Leap - jump toward the Vault Hunter smashing the ground when it lands
    • Rock slam - slams fist against the ground sending out line of rocks
    • Shard throw - pulls a red shard from a portal on the ground and throws it
    • Back hand - close range melee
  • Its critical hit spot is its head and bubbles on its back, these can be popped if they take too much damage.
